Respectful Parenting with Robin’s Nest


Respectful Parenting with Robin’s Nest

Last week I had the pleasure of discussing a respectful parenting approach with Carly from Robin’s Nest. The Robin’s Nest team is on a mission to empower children to be ambassadors of their own learning; respect each child by trusting their innate ability to be a capable contributing citizen; and collaborate by building meaningful relationships with children, their families, and communities.

At Robin’s Nest, each child is given the opportunity to be autonomous, independent, confident, and encouraged in their own learning and development. A safe and inclusive learning environment is provided for children to explore and embrace their natural abilities. Their Centre, families, children, and community work together to foster every child’s capacity to play an active role in society.

We talked about how they got started with respectful parenting and child care, their respectful parenting courses, and some tips on how to get started on creating a more collaborative approach within your family. You can watch our chat here. And since we didn’t quite get to it, you can find their favourite book recommendations below:

Does your family use a respectful parenting approach? Did this discussion with Carly make you want to learn more about it? One of my favourite things about the Robin’s Nest team is that they are very accepting of others. They don’t impose judgement on your parenting “mistakes” they only encourage you to notice your own behaviour, look inside yourself, and question if you can do better.

Let me know what your biggest take away from our chat was, and which of their book suggestions you’ll be reading first!
